On Thursday, UK-based fintech startup and read-only, anonymised Twitter client that blocks all broadcasting (Tweeting) and messaging, Market EarlyBird, announced it has formed a partnership with cloud-based workflow and collaboration platform, Symphony, for its new program EarlyBird for Symphony.
According to Market EarlyBird, EarlyBird for Symphony will offer the same core features as the stand-alone client but will have the ability to instantly follow anyone on Twitter, intelligent natural-language financial searches, user-controlled relevance filtering and “going-viral” Tweet alerts, all backed up by MiFID II compliant recording. Additional tailored features which integrate with the Symphony platform include the ability to share Tweets across Symphony chat windows and conduct instant Twitter searches from Symphony cashtags. Market EarlyBird’s CEO, Danny Watkins stated:
“I’m delighted with this exciting development. Our aim with EarlyBird has always been to bring the full Twitter experience to trading floors in a read-only, fully compliant form, and to give Twitter-Savvy financial professionals a competitive edge through our advanced tools designed for financial markets. With EarlyBird now available on Symphony Market, we’ve taken a significant step towards achieving that goal.”
Frederic Stemmelin, Vice President of Business Development at Symphony, then added:
“We are excited to offer the EarlyBird application to Symphony’s growing community of users. With this app, EarlyBird gives financial professionals the ability to access Twitter content in a read-only, anonymized manner without ever leaving the Symphony platform.”
Market EarlyBird went on to add that it will be demonstrating its integration with Symphony at Symphony Innovate 2017 on October 4th at the Conrad Hotel in New York.
